Assistant Managing Editor/Sports

Chris Carr is the Star Tribune's Assistant Managing Editor for Sports.

A native of Richfield, Carr grew up reading the Star Tribune. Somewhere in his mom's basement is an old photo of Chris, sitting on 1970s shag carpet in some groovy brown corduroys, holding a Star Tribune that was bigger than he was. After graduating from Wisconsin-Eau Claire, He worked in Washington D.C., Milwaukee and Charlotte before jumping at an opportunity to work for the hometown newspaper. He will always only own male dogs, so he at least has a fighting chance at home against the three ladies (two little ones, one grown-up) of his life.
